Born and bred in Sophiatown, Linda Malindi is no stranger to
poverty and violence. After the killing of her only brother, the
jailing and disappearance of her father, and the death of her
mother when she is taken in by the family of a distant cousin, she
is thrown out on the streets when the cousin and his wife accuse
her of soliciting the services of a witchdoctor to infect their
daughter with TB. Once more homeless and alone, pregnant and
abandoned by the father of the child. Suddenly she feels the onset
of the birth of her child. Desperate for help, she remembers being
told that Ma-jaze, the notorious hardnosed owner of Angels One,
might help her in her predicament. This is a turning point for
Linda. Ma-jaze befriends her but she loses the baby. She finds
solace in the arms of Simon Mangana, who through necessity left his
wife and child in his homeland to seek work in the City of Gold.
The course of their love affair is charged with turbulence, Simon
is lured back to his village, a brief sojourn that ends in sadness
and disillusionment and drives him back to Sophiatown.
